The modern airplane must be made of stronger and lighter materials to safely carry more people and to be fuel efficient. This program features a NASA scientist who uses a knowledge of the physical properties of materials, compounds, and mixtures and a variety of measuring techniques to develop new “composite” materials for airplanes. Students will learn how data from laboratory experiments are recorded, displayed (visualized), and interpreted. The lesson and classroom experiment will involve students in the observation and description of physical changes.
